Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

  • Horses in need- PM me for pictures


    This is a list of horses, mostly Standardbreds, that Lollypop Farm is assisting in placing. There are about 80 horses total needing homes but we are starting with a list of the horses the owner felt she needed to find homes for first. Some have been cart trained, a few have been ridden. The information here is what was given by the owner.

    *Please note the owner is asking $200 per horse with the exception of the mini, which she is asking $500 for. She will be donating a portion of that money to Lollypop Farm for assisting in placing the horses. The rest will be used to pay for the care of the remaining horses.

    If you are interested in finding out more about any of these horses, please contact the Farm Manager, Joanna Dychton, at 585-223-1330 x266 or farm@lollypop.org. She will be making arrangements for interested parties to go view the horses at the farm where they are being kept.

    “Audi” – Standardbred mare born 1994. Dark bay with small crescent star and snip on right nostril. This mare is basically wild and has not welcomed attention when attempts were made to work with her. The owner would like to find her and one other mare, “Married,” a forever wild home or a trainer who works with hard to handle horses.

    “Audrey” – Standardbred mare born 1987. Bay with large star, stripe and snip just below nostrils, LH sock. This is “Audi’s” mother. Unsure about riding history but was probably cart trained.

    “Belladonna” – draft cross mare born 2002. Bay with large star and small snip, approximately 14.3hh. Been ridden a handful of times.

    “Broadway” – Standardbred stallion born 2006. Bay with LH pastern. No training, shy to being handled.

    “Chutzpah” – Miniature horse gelding born 2004. Gray. Rides and drives, was Amish trained. Very thin right now, may need teeth checked. Owner asking $500 for him.

    “Daranna” – Standardbred mare born 1989. Bay with large star and small white snip on nose, RH and LH coronet.

    “Elegance” – Standardbred mare born 1987. Bay with large star and snip, few white hairs on top of tail. Good to lead and work around, cart trained. Just a bit nervous to catch. May have arthritis, seemed off when walking around.

    “Lane” – Standardbred mare born 1989. Dark bay, star, small stripe, and white pasterns both hinds. Blind in left eye.

    “Lisa B” - Standardbred mare born 1995. Bay with star and RF sock. Drives and has been ridden 6 times. Doesn’t stand for mounting yet. Has some cracks in her feet.

    “Lordessa” – Standardbred mare born 1989. Red bay with star, snip, RH sock and LH pastern. This mare has a stifle issue.

    “Married” – Standaredbred mare born 1997. Bay, no white markings. This mare is basically wild and has not welcomed attention when attempts were made to work with her. The owner would like to find her and one other mare, “Audi,” a forever wild home or a trainer who works with hard to handle horses.

    “Rennaissance” – Standardbred mare born 1995. Red bay with few white hairs on forehead and pasterns both hinds. Tall girl and is VERY friendly! She followed us around for attention the whole time we were in her pasture. No training but good with feet.

    “Scribner” – Standardbred mare born 1984. Bay with small star and pastern both hinds.

    “Shadow” – Standardbred mare born 1986. Bay. Blind in left eye. Friendly girl.

    “Shopwith” – Standardbred mare born in 1988. Dark bay with large star and LH pastern. Cart trained. She is very good with foals.

    “Social” – Standardbred mare born in 1985. Bay with small white mark on LH near hock. Halter has a tag on it #193. She is showing signs of aging. She is cart trained.

    “We Deliver” – Standardbred mare born 1986, Bay with small star, white hairs on nose, and white pasterns RH and LF. Was lame on RF but it looked like an abscess popping. Mare could also have some arthritis. She is thin, showing signs of aging. She is cart trained.

    Wow what a mess! I doubt if you would get many takers if you offered to pay $200 to take them. Shame on whomever allowed this to happen.

        Poor horses, but good luck to the owner if she wants $200 per horse with a bunch of horses that were born in the 80s... I hope she can find someone to take them in and give them what she needs.

          They are on petfinder, I noticed them a few weeks ago. I'd love to get some ewes from them, but really don't want to do the cross-boarder mess. Would be great for locals though!

              The price asked for the mini is quite high, unfortunately. She'd truly be better off starting off with a more reasonable price, especially if the little guy needs rehab. Such a sad situation.

                Based on the descriptions these horses for their own safety and well being should be euthanized. I think it is a crime to try and extort a few bucks out of them in the name of "charity".

                In poor health

                And they demand someone else take their NEGLECT and foolishness off of their hands and pay them for the privilege? SHAMEFUL!

                  I pretty much have to agree with Woodland here. There are already so many healthy trained and rideable horses for free (heck way more than homes willing to take them).

                  We just received here, yes for free, on our farm two imported Irish draughts. NOTHING wrong with them, fully trained etc. Their owner kept them in the best of care and just feel on harder times.

                  Especially for the old horses this person has have the vet out and euthanize them.

                    Personally I agree too. Hopefully that is a conclusion the person will reach since there truly are plenty of sound horses out there in need of homes. But, I was asked to "pass it along".
